Energy Law

The energy transition has not only gained momentum due to political and regulatory requirements, but also due to geopolitical risks and the associated embargoes. Added to this are technical developments that are leading to new complex infrastructure projects in urban and rural areas, particularly in the energy-intensive industry and mobility sectors.

We advise national and international energy suppliers, project developers, energy traders, energy service providers, component manufacturers and contractors, financiers, investor companies, industry associations and public companies.

Our energy law team is familiar with the challenges of the energy industry and knows both the day-to-day business of energy companies and all the life cycles of energy projects. Some of our lawyers have more than 20 years of expertise in advising the energy sector.

As a full-service law firm, we support complex energy projects with additional team members from our construction and property law, corporate/M&A, antitrust law, public commercial law and public procurement law, regulation as well as contract and commercial law practice groups.

However, we not only advise energy companies or those closely associated with the energy industry, but also companies from industry and the transport sector, including local and long-distance transport, rail freight transport and local public rail and road passenger transport. Over the years, we have acquired particular expertise in advising on the use of alternative drive systems such as hydrogen and electromobility and the associated charging infrastructure and storage technologies.

Our specialised Renewables team also has a particular focus on complex issues relating to photovoltaics, hydrogen and wind energy.
